parameter order when calling a web service

Hi.

I'm having some problems consuming a webservice. The server keeps
complaining about the wrong element beeing sent..

I have this method that takes two strings String_1 and String_2
The server expects to get String_1 first, but somehow my client (C# .net cf)
sends String_2 first.. On top of that, If i build solution and run the .exe
file, it works fine.

Is there any way to control what order parameters are sent to the server?

Thanks in advance for any help! :)

Ensure that the proxy class generated is with the latest WSDL.

Can you shed some more light on what is the solution that you are talking
about and the exe is executed where?

Thanks for your reply.

The proxy class is from the latest WSDL.
The .exe is executed in a windows xp environment, forgot to mention that.

The solution is a document/literal web service that is supposed to log a
user in. The client supplies a username and a password.

The code for the client:

MainController service = new MainController();
service.Url = "http://10.0.102.112:8080/trim/ws";

try
{
checkUserAccessLogin login = new checkUserAccessLogin();
login.String_1 = brukernavn.Text;
login.String_2 = passord.Text;

checkUserAccessLoginResponse response =
service.checkUserAccessLogin(login);
Users user = response.result;

}
catch (Exception ex)
{
MessageBox.Show("ERROR: " + ex.Message);
}

relevant parts of the WSDL:

<complexType name="checkUserAccessLogin">

<sequence>
<element name="String_1" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="String_2" nillable="true" type="string"/>
</sequence>
</complexType>

<element name="checkUserAccessLogin" type="tns:checkUserAccessLogin"/>

<complexType name="Users">

<sequence>
<element name="address" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="cellPhone" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="email" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="firstName" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="groupID" nillable="true" type="int"/>
<element name="homePhone" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="isActive" type="int"/>
<element name="isAdmin" type="int"/>
<element name="isDeleted" type="int"/>
<element name="language" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="lastIP" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="lastLogin" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="lastName" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="position" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="postNo" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="postRegion" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="userID" nillable="true" type="int"/>
<element name="userName" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="userPass" nillable="true" type="string"/>
<element name="workPhone" nillable="true" type="string"/>
</sequence>
</complexType>

</types>

<message name="MainControllerInterface_checkUserAccessLogin ">
<part element="ns1:checkUserAccessLogin" name="parameters"/>
</message>

<operation name="checkUserAccessLogin">
<input message="tns:MainControllerInterface_checkUserAcce ssLogin"/>
<output message="tns:MainControllerInterface_checkUserAcce ssLoginResponse"/>
</operation>

<soap:binding style="document"

<operation name="checkUserAccessLogin">
<soap:operation soapAction=""/>

<input>
<soap:body use="literal"/>
</input>

<output>
<soap:body use="literal"/>
</output>
</operation>

hope this helps.

Unable to reproduce the error. In my tests using your WSDL, the parameters
were serialized/deserialized in the correct order. Have you been able to
capture the SOAP being sent from the client to verify that it is not being
serialized correctly?

As a side note, if you control the service, then strongly consider changing
the design to use a more secure approach. You should design this with
WS-Security, using WSE 3.0 or Windows Communication Foundation. Either of
these technologies will provide you with a better long-term strategy that is
much more secure and more flexible for security options down the road. It
is considered a bad security practice to pass the password back as the
result of a security call, as this can be used in an attack to try to
obtain other user's credentials.

Would reiterate... refresh you CF project (proxy class) for latest WSDL.
If it runs fine on desktop, it should behave identically from CF as well.

Except that I just noticed you are running Compact Framework, and neither
WSE nor WCF run on NETCF yet.

I would still design this using WS-Security techniques with a UsernameToken,
hand-crufting the UsernameToken in the NETCF serialization code, and make
sure that you run the message over an SSL connection.

Thank you for your reply.

I intend to use some sort of security token to secure the service, however
I'm still in the initial process of developing a client to consume the
webservice. Thanks for the pointer though!

As far as I understand there are two ways of passing parameters. Either
alphabetically or by position in the wsdl (which should be the "right" one).

But both should pass in my case. The String_1 comes first in both cases.
